Q. What is an MLP?
A. MLP stands for master limited partnership. It is a limited partnership that is publicly traded on a securities exchange. It combines the tax benefits of a limited partnership with the liquidity of publicly traded securities. MLPs are limited by law to apply to enterprises that engage in certain businesses, mostly pertaining to the use of natural resources, such as petroleum and natural gas extraction and transportation. MLPs pay their investors through quarterly required distributions (QRD), the amount of which is stated in the limited partnership agreement between the limited partners (the investors) and the general partner (the manager). Equity ownership in MLPs is referred to as “units”.
